Fried Bannock A Metis recipe
- 3 cups (750 ml) sifted flour
- 1 tsp (5 ml) salt
- 1-2 tbsp (15-30 ml) baking powder
- Vegetable oil or lard
Mix half of the flour with the remaining dry ingredients. Add water until the mixture becomes thick, like paper mache paste. Add more flour until the dough feels like a soft earlobe. Heat oil over medium - high heat until very hot but not smoking. Break off small pieces of the dough, and flatten each to the size of your palm. Place the pieces in the hot oil. Turn over after 3-4 minutes, or when golden brown. Place the bannock on a paper towel to soak up the excess grease.
Serve plain or with maple syrup or blueberry jam.
Not for the pups.
